This is a rare antique Scottish Pottery figurine of Wee Macgregor dressed in a football strip with a brown shirt and blue shorts.

Wee Macgregor is a character in a book by the Scottish writer, J.J. Bell. He is a working-class boy of around seven or eight years old and comes from the east end of Glasgow.

Macgregor stands nonchalantly with his hands on his hips and his foot resting on a football.

It was made in the 1920s by the Britannia Pottery of Glasgow.

He is a fairly large size for display - measuring some 14 inches in height and has a diameter at the base is 5 ½ inches.

These figures were produced in a variety of colours to represent different football strips - there is one currently on display in the National Museum of Scotland where Wee MacGregor is shown wearing a Celtic Strip.

He is in good condition with no chips or cracks - but with some firing fissures on the inside of the base which are stable and have occurred in the making.

There is a registration number on the back of the base as photographed.

He is a substantial piece of pottery weighing unpacked 1.6 kg.
